  • Notes 
    • "He was apparently the first of the Bradfords to settle is Austerfield, was called 'Willm Bradfurthe of Austerfelde' as early as 12 Feb. 1557/8, in the will of his uncle, Peter Bradfurthe, and was one of the six executors who proved this will, 6 Apr. 1558. According to Hunter (The Founders of New Plymouth, p. 102) William Bradford and John Hanson (the two grandfathers of Governor Bradford) were about 1575 the only inhabitants of Austerfield who were assessable in the subsidy." [William Bradford Browne, "Ancestry of the Bradfords of Austerfield, County York"]
